Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between dance therapy and dance lessons?

A: Dance lessons involve learning dance steps for the purpose of improving your technique or preparing for a performance. Dance therapy uses dance movements as a means to express emotions, potentially enhancing your self-esteem and mental health, and improving your body's motor functions.

Q: Are you supposed to tip for private dance lessons?

A: You generally don't need to tip a dance instructor for private lessons, unless you want to because they've gone above and beyond in some capacity. However, most dance instructors charge high rates so they're making an excellent wage without tips.

Q: How do you warm up before dance lessons?

A: Some of the best ways to warm up your body before a dance lesson are taking a brisk walk or doing jumping jacks, lunges, and push-ups. These exercises will get your muscles moving and your blood pumping so you're ready to start dancing when you arrive at the studio.
